Time does fly when you’re having fun. The job – I’m known to make the guy who sits next to me laugh a lot with my insights. And I’ve been lauded for identifying a suspicious login to QA servers – all with the ID qualys01. So I used grep and awk to pull out all occurrences and then used nmap to see what the IP addresses resolved to – all QA machines.
But the guy I replaced – the way he did passwords to the servers in an excel sheet. Making it great fun and I might have to use the GRUB single user trick on a few boxen.
